Fat Freezing: What Happens During a CoolSculpting Treatment

Fat freezing is a revolutionary treatment called CoolSculpting. It uses a scientific process known as Cryolipolysis (“Cryo” = cold + lipo = fat + lysis = cell death and removal.) In order words, CoolSculpting freezes fat cells to death and then removes them from the body as waste. This technology tackles stubborn fat bulges that resist diet and exercise. While freezing fat cells to death may sound too good to be true, the science is FDA cleared and is proven safe and effective. Also, before and after CoolSculpting images, demonstrate that Cryolipolysis reduces fat deposits without surgery or downtime.

The Fat Freezing Treatment

Fat freezing with CoolSculpting’s state-of-the-art technology provides a safe, effective, and virtually painless experience. Your CoolSculpting expert marks the targeted fat bulge. The expert then places an applicator over the bulge you wish to get rid of. A gentle suction mechanism keeps the applicator in place. The suction then draws the subcutaneous fat cells away from the skin in preparation for cooling.

Next, the CoolSculpting machine starts to freeze fat cells to precise temperatures in the treatment area without harming the skin or tissue. At first, you may experience a weird sensation of tugging and/or intense cold in the treatment area. However, these sensations dissipate within a few minutes. Many patients report a painless, even relaxing experience during the process.

A typical cooling session lasts 35 minutes, depending on the unique parameters of your plan. Following your treatment, your technician will gently massage the area.

CoolSculpting requires no downtime, so your welcome to resume your activities, even exercise directly after.

After Your Fat Freezing Treatment

Exposing fat cells to controlled cooling destroys the cell. This triggers the immune system to collect and excrete the destroyed fat cells from the body. The natural process generally takes several weeks. Individual results vary, yet some patients see results in four weeks.* However, most people need 8 to 12 weeks to see their fat freezing treatment’s full potential.

Immediately following your fat freezing procedure, you may experience some bruising, redness, and tenderness associated with an immune response as your body metabolizes the destroyed cells. However, these CoolSculpting side effects are mild and disappear in a few days.
